During the early planning stages for the expansion of the University of Maryland, one possible location for the new campus was the Inner Harbor of Baltimore City. Consideration of the site went as far as making a Diagrammatic Scheme as a “Proposal for Downtown Campus for University of Maryland Implementation Through Urban Renewal Program.” Albin Kuhn did not favor the location, primarily because land for further expansion would have been difficult and expensive to acquire. The area identified as the Proposed Campus Area is approximately where both the Baltimore Convention Center and Oriole Park at Camden Yards are now located.
